This F1 hybrid - big, double, glowing like fireworks in four different shades - yellow, orange, gold and red blossoms. It emerges a fantastic contrast with the dark-green foliage.
Upright, bushy plant slightly more heat tolerant that other tuberous begonias--that describes 'Non-Stop Fire.'
It belongs to the Tuberhybrida Group, a collection of begonias derived from species native to the Andes Mountains of South America.
The extravagant hot-colored flowers are produced from summer to mid-autumn and are set among open, succulent stems across the plant. They are produced in a cluster of three buds, with two smaller female flowers next to the larger, usually double (extra petals) and showier male flower. Leaves are fleshy, jagged and pointed, glossy, and dark green in color.
This begonia needs a rich but well-drained soil in a partially shaded location. It should receive direct sunlight only early in the morning. Because these are very tender tropical plants, they are most often grown in containers indoors or outdoors, or in the ground in areas with warm winters and comfortable (not overly hot) summers. Excessive heat and humidity in summer will diminish and eventually wither these begonias, even though this series is best suited for areas with hotter summers. When plants begin to yellow in the autumn after flowering, reduce watering to induce the natural winter dormancy. In cold climates, this is the time that the tubers should be lifted and stored inside in a cool, dry location until buds reappear in the spring. They may be replanted in pots or outdoors once danger of frost has passed and soil temperatures are warm.
